Named for the exotic, colourful bird of South America, Tucan Travel is the real deal when it comes to adventurous travel around the world. It all started with travel addicts Pip and Liliana Tyler in 1987 when they launched one of the first-ever South America adventure tour companies. Tucan Travel now offers 470 adventures in 72 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, South America and Antarctica.

Still fiercely independent and passionate about independent adventure experiences, Tucan Travel is staffed by travel addicts who really know their stuff and operate 95 percent of their tours themselves, as well as local guides who share their pioneering spirit. With a focus on adventure, you’ll find like-minded travellers aged primarily between 25 to 45 years on a Tucan Travel tour.

With plenty of tour options and more included excursions than you could ever dream of, Tucan Travel has the right trip for you, no matter what your travel style. Think the Galapagos Islands, sailing the Dalmatian Coast, trekking through the Golden Triangle or even cruising Antarctica. Still can’t decide? They’ve also go the option of Tailor-Made Tours so you’ll always get the right fit.
